Should providing LE be classified as "free stuff"? What about your local firehouse? Or a bridge? A road? Our military? Clean air?

Yes, if the so called "free stuff" raises the quality of life for ALL of us - I'm all for it to be paid out of general gov't budgets.

PS If clean air can be "free" why not also clean waters? Or would you require each individual to pay out of pocket for the privilege of breathing clean air?

Yeah right... a free pumpout is going to fix this problem? What a joke.

You truly believe the firehouse, a bridge a road and the military are all free? Honestly how can you be so naive? You must also believe that electricity just comes out of the wall like magic.

I think you solved your liveaboard problem with your photos.

I don't think anyone's living aboard the boats you're having a problem with.

Re: Richardson Bay liveaboards, heads up!

"Free" pumpout will still require the boat to move to the facility. Since boats in California pay property taxes which are likely to include significant charges for sewage, pump outs here aren't free even if there is no charge at the pumpout facility. ... I pay a vendor $20 to come to my boat to pump out "black."

Gee... Seems pretty magical to me, considering what we have to go through for the same thing on the yacht!

Not necessarily. The grants that marinas typically obtain from the state to have fixed pumpout stations installed are also available for mobile, boat-to-boat services. The same limitations apply however. ie: maximum $10 fee for use etc.
